On one hand the part that wants realism is disappointed by the decision as I kinda looked forward to find things literally in the black But I also thought that total blackness might go too far and near blackness would be better to see. Afterall it is a game
Yeah, I don't fly around blacked out rings in pitch blackness and bump the gamma up to 50-75%, but I prefer the game generally dark. I also think there could be reflected light on some planets, or second suns and etc, so they don't all have to be dark. But what I'd really like is better ship & buggy lights. I'd love ship landing lights that surround the ship and aim down, flooding the entire area with light from a much farther distance. Then you could even leave the lights on when you deploy the buggy. Yup - that works.
